Green Exercise: How It Benefits Your Clients

by Shirley Archer, JD, MA
Running through the forest. Cycling through your neighborhood park. Walk­ing alongside a river. To most people, “green exercise”—intentionally being physically active in natural environments—feels good, and growing research evidence confirms its benefits (Calogiuri, Patil & Aamodt 2016). Here’s a look at what the latest findings tell us about why you may want to incorporate green exercise into your training programs—and even suggest specific nature-based practices for stress reduction and general well-being.

Getting to the Bottom: The Ischial Tuberosity

by Joy Keller
The posterior aspect of the body, along with its muscles, tendons, bones and attachments, is easy to overlook because it’s out of sight and, therefore, often out of mind. Until, that is, pain occurs. The ischial tuberosity—also known as the “sit bones” or even “sitz bones” (from the German word sitzen) (Garikiparithi 2017)—has many different connections, although it is mainly associated with the hamstring muscles (Drake et al. 2010).

Exercise’s Impact on Cancer

There are three ways to look at battling cancer. For those who don’t have it, lowering risk is the primary goal. For those who’ve had it, successfully recovering and, of course, reducing the chances of recurrence are of utmost importance. For those who currently have it, the priorities are getting rid of it and minimizing the harmful effects that both the disease and the treatment have on the body. Exercise has been shown to help with all three.

What Fitness Pros Need to Know About New Blood Pressure Guidelines

by Zachary Fennel, Len Kravitz, PhD
New guidelines on high blood pressure made headlines late last year because they suggest that nearly half of all Americans have hypertension—up from about one-third under previous guidelines. This is big news for fitness professionals because regular exercise is an excellent tool for regulating blood pressure. In this issue, we’ll review what you need to know about the new blood pressure guidelines.

130/80 = High Blood Pressure

by Ryan Halvorson
For the first time since 2003, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association have produced a substantial report updating blood pressure recommendations. People with a reading of 130/80 are now classified as having high blood pressure. This is down from 140/90. According to the ACC, this means 46% of U.S. adults will now be categorized as having hypertension. Those in the “hypertensive crisis” category require medication intervention and immediate hospitalization if there is organ damage, according to the report.

A Scientific Approach to Core Training

Now, researchers from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland, have developed a model they hope gives fitness pros a solid platform to work from.

How to Develop Better Work–Life Balance

by Ryan Halvorson
Do you find yourself checking your email and responding to messages well after you’ve “clocked out” for the day? While keeping up with emails after hours might seem productive, researchers from the University of Zurich in Switzerland believe this habit could have the opposite effect. They launched an online survey in which 1,916 employees answered questions about work–life balance. For example, respondents were asked how often they thought about work during nonwork hours; the type and frequency of recovery activities; and exhaustion levels.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of the Surgeon General, you have a 70-percent greater chance of becoming overweight or obese as an adult if you are an overweight adolescent. This figure is increased by 10 percent if you have an overweight or obese parent. This is why it is vital to have students research the topic of exercise and adolescents.

Have adolescents create an exercise plan. Students should first research exercise recommendations for adolescents. Based on this information, students should devise an exercise plan. For example, children are supposed to participate in physical activity for at least an hour on most days of the week. The students should write a few sections about physical activity and recommendations, and at least one or two sections on their course of action.

Most everyone knows about general benefits of exercise. However, this topic should go into more depth about a number of ways that exercise benefits adolescents. This may include researching exercise's impact on mood, its cardiopulmonary benefits, its immune system benefits and even its impact on other aspects of life such as sleep. This topic can help instill the benefits of being active and not living a sedentary lifestyle.

Students can research different kinds of exercise. They can write a paper about anaerobic and aerobic exercise, and what activities fall into each category. If a student discovers more options for both anaerobic and aerobic exercise, a new activity may spark his interest. This can ultimately lead to the student being more physically active.

This topic idea includes researching the conditions and problems from which a lack of exercise results. This includes obesity and obesity-related conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and sleep apnea. By having students research harmful effects of a sedentary lifestyle, students may more inclined to be physically active on a regular basis. In addition, the students will learn about the obesity-related conditions.
